Any experiences with them? Like Kaseya, Continuum, etc?
We've been messing with Continuum for a while. The sales people love it because there's a good margin in it (the service is cheap) but all the techs hate it because it sucks, is worthless, reporting is horrible, etc.
I've heard Kaseya wa...
| Tech Board|| Comcast business internet - VoIP QoS? - Casty McBoozer on 8/26/14 at 12:38 pm|
Does anyone know if Comcast honors QoS tagging? Do their SMC modems? I don't see any QoS options in the SMC, so I'm guessing there's nothing there...but if I get a router that's QoS capable, and get the public IP on it, can I help out this VoIP system? Or will Comcast just disregard QoS tagging?...

So I have this customer who has a server...RAID 6, redundant power, Server 2008 R2, nothing fancy, your basic run-of-the-mill server.
They also have a Datto Siris appliance that uses StorageCraft's ShadowProtect that takes snapshots every hour and backs up the snapshots to Datto's datacenter (i.e...

I'm assuming most people just use web, email, printing? Some .doc creation/editing and spreadsheets?
What does your average user at home need that linux couldn't easily handle?
There must be something I'm overlooking....
| Tech Board|| If wireless access points/routers/whatever advertise the speed of their device - Casty McBoozer on 8/11/14 at 2:05 pm|
as the total possible theoretical throughput, then why don't hard-wired devices. I think that would help some people understand that wireless is absolute shite compared to ethernet.
In other words, if you have a 24 port gigabit switch, they should advertise 24 Gbps...or use their marketing terms ...
| Tech Board|| Anyone have experience with credit card processing software/vendors/ - Casty McBoozer on 8/5/14 at 10:10 am|
I have a customer having problems with IC Verify. She's been hounding their service desk for a month and they can't seem to resolve her issues. Basically the software crashes when she tries to settle a batch.
At this point, the software vendor has told her she needs to w...

| O-T Lounge|| Digging up rocks and mud from old clogged french drain - tool suggestions - Casty McBoozer on 8/1/14 at 7:25 am|
Shovel is shite.
So far I've found the most effective tool is the wide end of a pick axe.
Anything better than this? It's only about 1 foot wide by 20 feet long or so. It's packed in there like a bitch, though.

If you want to move this to the Tech board, that's fine, I thought it was better here.
This is one of those stories that you hear and don't believe because you think no one can possibly be THIS stupid. Here's my story, with no embellishment:
I work for a computer services company along with a...

I recently noticed my overflow line for my A/C was dripping.
I thought the main drain line was clogged so I brought some bleach up to the attic, but found the main line had come loose, so the A/C was just dripping directly into the pan.
Anyway, I got that straightened out. What I'm concerne...

Someone brought us a Surface tablet with the instructions to install Google Chrome...and yes, motherfricker should have just gotten an Android if he wants to use Google, right?
At first I was thinking this guy must be a halfwit if he can't figure out how to install Chrome.
But then I tried, and...

I borrowed a little Honda pressure washer from a coworker, it has a GCV160 engine on it. It's not anything high-end, I think it's 2400 psi.
I was running the pressure washer for a little while, put it down to climb up a ladder for a minute, and the end of the hose separated from the threaded end....

We went vacationing in Destin at the end of May. Some new toll-by-plate system took a picture of my license plate and they've sent me a bill. It's not much, just $5.50 ($1.50 for each pass and a $2.50 administration fee). Apparently the admin fee can be avoided if you create a pre-paid account :lo...

I've come close to landing good paying I.T. jobs with larger companies, but it hasn't worked out. I always end up in small companies where there's no room to advan...
